Insulating heating ducts in the crawl space under the house I insulated the heating ducts under my house. I was getting cold air blowing through the vents in rooms furthest from the furnace. I had to seal all the leaks...that was causing low flow of heat circulation. Using mastic and fiber reinforced tape(like the kind you use on drywall or cement board, I sealed all the leaks. Also I insulated the heating ducts completely. Now I am feeling like the house is warming up when the heater goes on. What a difference. For the cost of about $220, I got everything at home depot. Reflectix insulation, Nashua tape, Master brand air duct sealant "MASTIC", and I used fiber reinforced tape that I already had - the kind you use on durock cement board. I am not an expert. There are not a lot of videos on insulating heating ducts so I made one. I am positive that what I have done here will save money in the future. The house is warmer than it was - noticed it right away. Everything used can be found at home depot. Be inspired to save on heating bills. Instead of sitting around watching TV or wasting away like a zombie in front of the computer...it feels great to do a job to completion, and reap a money saving result. OK you've heard it before on the home depot commercials - you can do it; we can help. O' and it is quite a workout crawling around on hands and knees for about a week.

Earthquake Insulation - Japan April 2010 This report, released last year, gave a chilling prediction about the likelihood of a major earthquake hitting Japan. Now that its warning has come to bear, it offers a powerful background to the disaster. Seismic activities in and around Tokyo have been alarming researchers for quite a while. In this report, researcher and government advisor Takehiko Yamamura insists a disaster is just around the corner for Japan. "We can expect an earthquake like this every five years...it's only a matter of time...". After Kobe was reduced to rubble in less than 20 seconds in 1995, the nation stepped up its earthquake technology. Urban planners in Tokyo have confidence in their latest shock-absorbing equipment; "For the first time people should not have to flee from their homes, but can feel safe inside them". Yet Yamamura argues that the biggest problem is the attitude of the Japanese; "people still believe in the myth of their own invulnerability. We must constantly be on guard". Haunting words in the face of the current crisis.

Cheap and Green Insulation: Recycled Paper Cellulose Recently, Jay's dad started building on some property he owns in Rural Virginia. The first structure built was the garage/workshop. Jay and I were eager for the chance to try out some green building materials as an alternative to the usual stuff. Before traveling over to the east coast for Turkey Day, we did some research along side his pops about what the cheapest, most green insulation material could be used (which could also be purchased at a major box store near by). We found that Recycled Paper Cellulose was the least expensive material you could buy, at 25 cents per sq. foot and it is available through most building material suppliers. The alternatives were 'The Pink Stuff', fiberglass rolls at about 50 cents per sq. foot. I was wary of using fiberglass because of its notorious itch inducing particles that will irritate not just your skin, but your lungs as well! If the particles ever become loose and get into your ventilation system, this can mean big trouble for your internal organs and cancer fighting immune system. Another recycled and mostly benign insulator are the trendy new denim rolls. These are made from recycled scraps from jean manufacturers. This was my top choice until I did a price check. This stuff goes for $1.00 per sq. foot. Yikes! The price factor is still top priority when you have to build, those square feet can add up fast. And when you're trying to convince a retiring baby boomer to go green even though it costs 4 times as much, they're gonna ...

bubble wrap window insulation Guy who did some tests My claim here that placing bubble wrap on a single pane window results in an efficiency gain somewhere between untreated window, and a cheap thermopane seems pretty obvious. What I meant was that the results of my not-too-scientific study were that numbers seemed to post in the center between an entirely different thermopane window, and the untreated single pane window.
How to Install Rigid Foam Insulation Outside a House Excerpted from a full page article on installing exterior foam insulation at: GET THESE FIVE TRICKY SPOTS RIGHT, AND YOU'LL GET A SUPERINSULATED, ENERGY-EFFICIENT HOME An experienced builder explains the ins and outs of airtight exterior insulation Installing rigid foam on the outside of a house is a great way to double the R-value and eliminate air leaks. Large sheets of foam insulation, screwed and sealed to the walls or roof, can cover or replace conventional sheathing and create a continuous barrier to heat loss or gain—something you don't get with cavity insulation alone. We wrapped the house in this video with 4 inches of polyisocyanurate in two staggered 2-inch layers... For more information read the full page article at:
